Stitch samplers are a terrific way to practice new stitches.

The very first canvas embroidery stitch I learned – way back in the day – was the mosaic stitch. There are literally hundreds of canvas embroidery stitches that you can use to add depth and dimension to your needlepoint projects. And back in late September and early October, I hosted the 2020 Stitch Challenge to help needlepointers expand their stitch repertoires. More than 600 stitchers from around the world took part in that fun-filled three weeks. Several of those stitchers created samplers from their doodle canvases.

The short version is that I shared 16 canvas embroidery stitches you can use on your needlepoint canvases to add texture and visual interest to them.
